The new console could sport an eight-core processor called Jaguar made by Advanced Micro Devices, with a design more in step with processors found in traditional PCs -- and the upcoming PlayStation 4 -- than in past consoles. For developers who like to improve their odds of success and develop for multiple consoles, that's a very good thing. Sure, so-called "ports" may make once-exclusive console games too ubiquitous, but the easier it is for developers to code for something like the new Xbox, the more likely they are to do so.
